Welcome to Fraulob - Brown, one of Sacramento’s most respected law firms. We have a long history of representing hardworking Californians in their claims for Workers’ Compensation benefits, as well as with Social Security disability benefit denials, and in the fields of elder law and estate planning. We have a longstanding dedication to serving our community with compassion, and to using our legal experience to achieve favorable outcomes for our clients.
The workers’ compensation landscape can be difficult to navigate without the guidance of a helping hand. That’s why finding the right Workers Compensation Attorney is so important. At Fraulob - Brown, we represent injured workers both at the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board and in the appellate courts with their claims against employers and insurance companies, where we use our knowledge and experience to ensure that our clients receive the most favorable outcomes possible.
The majority of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) applications are denied prior to the appeals stage. This statistic demonstrates the need for a knowledgeable Social Security Disability Attorney to pursue your SSDI appeal. At Fraulob - Brown, we recognize that our disabled clients rely upon their social security benefits in order to support their families. Our attorneys are knowledgeable and well-practiced in the SSDI field, and we are here to offer you the support and legal assistance you need.
The legal field known as “Elder Law” covers a variety of services, from wills and trusts to advance health care directives. Fraulob - Brown represents, counsels, and assists seniors and their families with a variety of legal issues, focusing on maintaining and promoting the highest quality of life for all individuals. Our intention is to serve the needs and wishes of the senior community to ensure that their life-plan continues to be followed as they age. Fraulob - Brown uses its knowledge of helpful legal tools and strategies to accomplish these goals.
Contrary to popular belief, estate planning is not only for the wealthy. One of the top benefits of estate planning is avoidance of the probate process, which can cause undue cost, delays, and inconvenience for your loved ones. Fraulob - Brown is well-practiced in the estate planning field, and we guide you in the implementation of beneficial practices to ensure that your family is left with more than memories when the time comes.
